Miley Cyrus is back with a new single.
Over the last year or so Miley has been in the headlines for reasons outside of music. But like all great artists she is back to the basics of doing what she loves and is earning attention for the right reasons once again.
You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go – Mile Cyrus
The good artists make you forget. The really good artists make you remember.
I think Miley Cyrus is about to surprise a lot of people. Her new single, You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go is a superb effort. The song is laid back and stripped down. There is just a touch of instrumentation in the background and Miley takes all the attention with her voice and emotions.
I like this version of Miley Cyrus. She is making fans forget the pop sensation. It’s not that there was anything wrong with Hanna Montana. The character brought Miley to fame and was perfect for someone of that age. She was singing to girls of the same age and people loved it.
Now that Miley is a bit older and reaching adulthood she has taken on a maturity. Sure, she doesn’t have it all figured out, but who amongst us really does?
When it comes to music, though, I think Miley will make people remember this change in approach. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome is a really cool song. The acoustic sound is interesting and appealing. To the country fans it’s really interesting to hear this music from a former pop star. Miley always had a home in country music especially given her pedigree, but now she’s really seeking to find a niche in the genre.
The title of the new song let’s you know what the song is about. There is pain and emotion in the vocals. You can feel the sadness in Miley’s voice as she’s thinking about someone leaving and going on with their own life. It’s a simple song, but one with plenty to say.
Miley Cyrus is going to make a lot of people interested once again. You can’t deny her talent even if you’re busy cutting her down.
Great take on this Bob Dylan classic.
Give this one a chance. You’ll be sad yourself if you don’t.
